instant hair!

I'll save my latest purchase for tomorrow since it's a long story I feel I must share (in case I can spare anyone else the same aggravation). Instead I'll just show you my new hair - AGAIN! This was my first hair extension experience and I'm still on the fence about the whole thing. The synthetic extensions I got are taped, so it's quick and easy for "installation" but because they weren't put really low on my head you can feel them in a fairly obvious way. This could freak someone out if say, you didn't tell your guy you were getting hair extensions - he'd stroke your hair and think you had some gross scalp disease. And it's been over 24 hours and my head still feels odd - as in I feel like I have stuff stuck in my hair that I need to yank out. I'm sure I'll get used to that. Overall I do like them and am glad I tried them out. It brings my layered bob thing I had going on to a whole new level. I've always loved short and long hair mixed into one hair style. These extensions can last up to a year (the stylist who put them in said hers were re-applied 5 times over the span of a year) so I'll have to go back very couple of months or so to get them taken out and put back in close to my roots. I can't brush or use my straightener where the tape is and I read online that I shouldn't use conditioner on the tape and should only wash my hair twice a week max. So there's a bit of maintenance concerns with these but I can live with that. They cost about $170 and I think that included a few bucks for cutting (she trimmed and layered the extensions and cut the back of my hair alot shorter than it was because the new hair would have looked odd). Hope you all like them because I'll be keeping them around a while. :)







(P.S. I'm wearing a new MAC lipstick called Fluid I picked up the other day on my lunch break - it's a frost which I don't usually like but the colour was so awesome I got it anyway).
